The rail line passes through incredible landscapes showcasing Costa Rica’s storied Caribbean region. Stops are frequent, so you can enjoy glimpses of dense wildlife -- sloths, monkeys and other colorful creatures that live along the tracks.

Journey by boat into the Tortuguero Canals, where waterfowl, whiteface and spider monkeys, and many other animals are easily spotted. Fresh fruit and ice-cold water are served at the take-out point.
